What Characterizes Aztec Patterns?

Aztec patterns are known for their bright colors and bold geometric shapes that repeat themselves in long lines. The stripe ethnic Aztec pattern is the most traditional representation of Aztec patterns.

Today, we see them in a wide range of colors, but traditionally the Aztecs favored turquoise because they believed the turquoise stone had healing properties.

Ways to Use Aztec Patterns in Your Designs

There are endless ways you can use Aztec patterns in your designs.  An Aztec pattern stock illustration is especially fitting for print projects like Southwestern-themed wedding invitations, greeting cards, or thank-you notes. You can also apply them as a print wallpaper texture vector and create your own DIY wallpaper to hang in your kitchen, home office, baby nursery, or any room in the house.

Aztec prints are still a staple in country, western, and boho-style wardrobes. Fashion designers can apply them as a concept for fashion print or use them to create a vintage fashion pattern. At-home fashion enthusiasts can use them to make their own textile prints and sew them patchwork style onto denim wear for a completely customized up-cycled look.

For digital designers, Aztec backgrounds serve as a unique backdrop for branding, social media graphics, and much more. The options are truly limitless!
